The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864 - 1933) - Saturday 26 July 1930 p.10
OBITUARY.
Mrs. Jemima Ferguson.
The death occurred at Rode-road, Nundah, at the residence of her son (Lieut.-Colonel G. A. Ferguson), of Mrs. Jemima Ferguson, widow of the Rev. James Ferguson, of the Presbyterian Church. Mrs. Ferguson, who was aged 92 years and 7 months, with her late husband, came to Queensland in 1870 from India, where the Rev. Ferguson was head of a Presbyterian ladies' theological seminary, and where he was also engaged for some time in practical missionary work. Coming to Queensland for health reasons, he again engaged in missionary work, and was stationed at Springsure and Harrisville, and other centres. His death occurred in 1875. Mrs. Ferguson had resided with her daughter, Miss E. K. Ferguson, at Lahore, Woody Point, for the past 10 years.

Thanks gibbo.

2x Jemima.

Because one had died the Jemima in 1929 has to be mine with her daughter although address is not exactly the same.

If the other Jemima died 1923 then how do we have her with son Kenneth in 1925?

All the E. K.s are mine and her mother Jemima should be at same address.

I think the 1917 is mine.
